Antique Ziegler rug

Circa 1890
202 × 123 cm 6’7” x 4’


A beautiful soft toned Antique Ziegler rug in a rare small size, as most Ziegler & Co workshop carpets were produced in large sizes for drawing rooms.  In excellent condition with a high wool pile throughout, it has beautiful muted colours, using gentle terracottas, teal blues and green shades on an unusual sandy tone background.  Woven with lovely light 4 corner spandrels and an elegant floral motif in the centre, a wonderful rare rug from the late 19th century in Sultanabad, Persia.

The wool pile height is very good, showing no signs of wear, for a rug of over 130 years old it is still a very durable and a decorative rug.

In 1883, Ziegler and Co, of Manchester, England established a Persian carpet manufacture in Sultanabad Persia, which employed designers from major western department stores such as B. Altman & Co of New York and  Liberty, to modify 16th- and 17th-century Eastern designs for the more restrained western taste. Using highly developed dying techniques, and the best artisans from the region, the Ziegler Co created rugs with bold all-over patterns and with softer palettes than their vibrant Persian counterparts.
